WARREN CONNECTICUT – It’s late Spring here with lovely light; the shadows are still transparent as the new leaves are light and translucent. I’m shooting ultra wide with my Sony 12-24 zoom, a space that I’m very comfortable in.

WARREN CONNECTICUT – I spend a fair amount of time doing studies to develop specific technical or aesthetic issues. Today and for the next few days I’m working on rendering (how a lens renders three-dimensional objects and light and dark) and bokeh (how a lens renders out-of-focus subjects). I’m shooting with my Leica Monochrom and the wonderful 50mm Summicron Asph. lens – which I call the Luxocron. I’ve got a lot of experience with this combination – the rendering is lovely. On another day we’ll see how the same lens on the Sony A7riii renders similar subjects.

On this date six years ago (day 948 of one photo every day for the rest of my life): 11th Avenue project. Six years ago I photographed both sides of 11th avenue along a to block stretch in the 40s with a PhaseOne medium format camera, which I’ve subsequently sold.
